Description

STARTS Tuesday, Sept 6th!

Have you ever felt what it was like to be in “the zone” while making art? The process of art making promotes a peaceful mind, joy, and full immersion in the present moment. Learn ways to overcome negative self talk or trauma from making art in the past so you can drop into the inner quiet, timelessness, and elation that exists when you are taking part in a creative endeavor. I’ve chosen 8 different watercolor projects that induce serotonin, mindfulness, and grounding. Please join me – come in person or use the videos! No art experience needed.

This is an adult course, but teens are welcome to participate as well. Children under 13 may accompany an adult taking the course or be accompanied by an adult.

COST: BY DONATION (students have been paying anywhere from $5 – $50 per class which comes out to $20-$200 for the whole course.) Please pay what matches your financial means and needs, even if you cannot afford to pay.

DATES: We will meet Tuesdays September 6, 13, 20, 27 AND October 4, 11, 18, 25  *NEW TIME: 4pm – 6pm Pacific Time

**NOTE – This course will be running 8 weeks in September + October. You can choose to sign up for either month or both. PLEASE ADJUST YOUR PAYMENT ACCORDINGLY. You will receive all 8 classes (live and recorded) no matter what as well as a BONUS of access links to live + recorded Wednesday class and YOU get to choose when you want to join us. 

Each class will be recorded that day and the link to view it will be sent along with the notes from the class each week. Recorded classes are only available to those who register for the class so we can keep a safe and nurturing space for those to express themselves.

Watercolor SUPPLIES:  

Watercolor: Any brand will do! (suggestion below)

Affordable Vibrant Watercolor set: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07S3FRJ31/?tag=cb-040846-20 (note, I don’t usually support Amazon, but can’t seem to find these other than on Ebay for way too much $… There are similar brands out there, but this one came highly recommended by a student)

Sets of watercolors in a metal case: Winsor Newton is a good place to start, but if you have the $ – go with Daniel Smith – there are 12 extra empty pans that you can fill with the colors of your choice later on and they are superior paints!

Brushes: there are so many kinds out there – I suggest a size 6 round and a flat brush but you can find nice affordable sets if you look. It’s best to go into an art store and ask about affordable options and they may even let you try one with water and sheet of paper.

Paper: 

Watercolor Block option: (where the pages are glued together so you paint one painting at a time and the paper buckles less than when using a pad) Get whatever size you like to work in. This is the size paper I will use:  https://www.dickblick.com/items/arches-watercolor-block-7-x-10-cold-press-20-sheets/

Journal option: (pages will buckle when using)
